Saturday, August 17th, 2019
On behalf of the Ladysmith Show and Shine committee and the hundreds of guests that will be bringing their classic/vintage/collector vehicles to our historic downtown, home of Canada’s Best Main Street, on Saturday, August 17th, we are inviting you to come and see this great family, community event.
From 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Ladysmith’s famous downtown turns into not just a classic car dreamers heaven but a great stroll along our tree-lined casual main street featuring many businesses, restaurants, and shops that will be catering to locals and visitors alike.
This is the 16th annual Show n Shine and promises to be bigger and better. In 2018, we saw 200 amazing vehicles line First Avenue in all makes, shapes, colours and restorations. You can’t miss this event.
Members of the Ladysmith Lions Club will be on hand, as they have done for years, with their concession trailer cooking up hamburgers and hot dogs along with cold drinks for the crowd. This year they will also show off their very special “Breakfast Sandwich” for early risers as well as for participants who will start arriving at 8:00 a.m. to register. The Breakfast Sandwich, featuring eggs and bacon, was a huge success last year and it will be available all day from the Lions Club concession.
Tour de Rock 2018
The 2018 Tour de Rock Cops for Cancer did their first “full dress” practice ride in August and arrived in Ladysmith late morning. The welcoming was huge and the Tour has now decided to make Ladysmith one of their stops, during their practices, during the Town’s annual Show and Shine, which is held on the third Saturday of August. The tour riders raised over $800 in donations just during their practice run in Ladysmith.
2018 Award Winners
Partial proceeds from the show were donated to local area charities.
